Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

drink less soda
Replace one craving for another

I’ve recently been relapsing from my goal of eliminating soda. I’ve realized that it compliments certain meals so well that eliminating it completely might not be realistic for me.

Still, when I was drinking only water, I found that my cravings for soda were being replaced with honest cravings for water. In addition, because of my period of only drinking water, I now find that too much soda has a tendency of making me feel crappy.

lose weight
It shouldn't be hard.

I am 6’2” and I typically weight between 190 and 200 pounds. I think I’d feel more comfortable in my skin if I weighed a little less. Maybe between 170 and 180? I know most guys want to get bigger, but I prefer the slim look.

It shouldn’t be too hard.
